Life presents itself first and foremost as a task: the task of maintaining itself, the task of earning one’s living. If this task is accomplished, what has been gained is a burden, and there then appears a second task: that of doing something with it so as to ward off boredom, which hovers over every secure life like a bird of prey. Thus the first task is to gain something and the second to become unconscious of what has been gained, which is otherwise a burden.

Came to a realisation today whilst walking around outside, looking at some trees thinking they will more than likely be there after I die and that is OK. Everything will be fine. it will just BE.

A Smile

There is something truely wonderful meaningful spiritual about a smile.
A great thought to start the day.
